Introduction of the Small Test Robot for Individuals in Dangerous Environments (STRIDE) Platform for Use in ADAS Testing 2023-01-0795
The use of platforms to carry vulnerable road user (VRU) targets has become increasingly necessary with the rise of automated driver assistance systems (ADAS) on vehicles. These ADAS features must be tested in a wide variety of collision-imminent scenarios which necessitates the use of strikable targets carried by an overrun-able platform. To enable the testing of ADAS sensors such as lidar, radar, and vision systems, S-E-A, a longtime supplier of vehicle testing equipment, has created the STRIDE robotic platform (Small Test Robot for Individuals in Dangerous Environments). This platform contains many of the key ingredients of other platforms on the market, such as a hot-swappable battery, E-stop, and mounting points for targets. However, the STRIDE platform additionally provides features which can enable non-routine testing such as: turning in place, driving with an app on a mobile phone, user-scripting, and steep grade climbing capability. The combination of these elements makes STRIDE an innovative product which can fulfill the needs of specialized use cases and enable the development of more robust test scenarios.
